Most importantly, stop putting institutional events on Facebook, stop using it at universities, stop making participation in Facebook mandatory through your institutional, organization, and activist roles. You can be online, and social, and connected without supporting Facebook.

Is it a good idea to run Nextcloud on a Raspberry Pi?

@HerraBRE @paul I'm sure many big companies do this. It's not that Google is more evil than other big companies. It's more that they're no different from any other big companies, and all big companies suck.

I like how even most nerds say that the GNU contribution to GNU/Linux is negligible and Stallman shouldn't make such a fuss about it. Let's just call it "Linux".

Then they proceed with using GIMP on GNOME, (hopefully) encrypting their emails with GPG and running R in their statistics courses.

Oh yeah and GNUradio is kinda cool. But this is of course all completely unrelated. πŸ™„

0 A.D.

Fancy some totally FREE and LIBRE Linux gaming without an influence of some multi-national corporation, stockholder or whatnot?

A real time strategy 0 A.D. from Wildfire Games has a new alpha build available.

Effort is there to make it look incredibly detailed and professional. This release is no different, with a lot of work going into all aspects of the game.

without Gapps vs ? I'm confused... Do I need MicroG if I don't want to use apps and services? What will I lose with no Gapps or ? If I have MicroG does it tie me into Google in anyway and/or share any data with Google?

Planning the switch to LineageOS soon.

The good work over on the "okreader" project is kind of amazing to me.

They have hacked away at a few kobo readers and made them virtually blob free barring wifi and the eink display controller.

No DRM, no other proprietary software. No vertically integrated store. No gaping spots in the UI begging for other proprietary services to be turned on.

Everything I want in an eReader.

@Angle hey comrade, how can I set up an account with anticapitalist.party? The webpage says it's closed. Any chance of an invite? I'd like somewhere to post/discuss political stuff while keeping this account mainly about tech since it's on a tech focused instance.
